The North American Rescue Burntec Burn Mask features hydrogel dressing that is different from other burn first aid dressings due to its stable-sheeting hydrogel structure. The dressing has been strengthened with easy-to-handle medical-quality non-woven fabric. This stable structure eliminates spillage or damaging the cooling hydrogel. The hydrogel stays over the burn area and prevents the gel from running off the injured surface area. Composed of natural and synthetic polymers such as polyvinylpyrrolidone, polyethylene glycol and agar, cross-linked by a beam of electrons.
The BurnTec cools and sooths the injured area for up to 24 hours. The sterile non-stick dressing is absorbent, trapping wound secretion and bacteria within the gel. The dressing is permeable to water vapor and oxygen but impermeable to bacteria which helps protect the wound from external contamination while allowing it to breathe. The material is biocompatible and does not cause allergic reactions. BurnTec is a modern hydrogel dressing used for a variety of skin injuries ranging from first, second, and third-degree burns (thermal, chemical, and electric). This dressing can also be utilized to provide relief from other skin injuries such as sunburns, abrasions, bruises, swelling, or insect bites. Immediate application of the dressing reduces the risk of hypertrophic scars. The non-stick properties allows for painless replacement of the dressing and it does not destroy granulation or new epithelium.
